Good initiation, Lee!
I remember my first trip outside the camp was with Steve Mason and some other reprobates down to the Chung Keng bar in Malacca. We sat outside and I was opposite a squaddie whose name I won't mention here and a very beautiful and popular young lady named Irene. After just a few minutes, the squaddie opposite me kept nodding for me to look below the table. I dutifully dropped a cig packet on the floor, bent down below the table to pick it up - and couldn't believe my eyes! That memorable view was my initiation into the debauched lifestyle that I freely embraced from that day onwards!!!

That was really just a boring LR trip to Terendak. Arrival at 208 was 'interesting'. I eventually saw the SSM, I reckon it must have been WO2 Hillman, based on the '64 Squadron photo. At least, to my memory, he had a sense of humour - 'What do you do in your spare time?" he asks, "football, cricket, and drinking" was the response. It must have been early in the week, Tue or Wed, because his next remark was "Good, you can do both this coming Saturday. Transport leaves at 0630", "Where to?", 'Ipoh","Where's that?", "Up north - we'll organise some gear. No problem". Up north?? The brain must be working OK - Oh good it might be a bit cooler - further from the equator!! I was still dressed in UK traveling gear, including woolen blazer The 'organised ' gear turned out to be a pair of what these days might be called runners/trainers, white 'shorts',and a white short sleeved shirt. After 9 hours the the Ipoh sun, the trip back to Terendak was me, along with the rest of the 'team', drinking copious amounts of Tiger, doing a passable impression of a lobster. After that initiation, it didn't take me long to find the sailing club, and partake of all the activities that go with dinghy sailing.

I will stand corrected, but, I believe those 6 berets are may be UN. Maybe Cyprus. They've got jimmys on the tunics lapels.

Just browsing around and noticed the last six entries in "Out of Comms" seem to be wearing light-coloured "SAS" berets. Or did the blue colour of our berets get changed after I left?

Yes sir, permission granted!  I've mentioned in another thread that I just tried the birthdate update again and it's still not working, so the door's firmly closed on that one (at least from my perspective)!
But I also wanted to put on record something I recently discovered and which might be helpful for someone else: I opened a thread to post a reply and realised it was upside down, ie latest post at the bottom instead of the top. I closed it to "fix" my profile (I thought) to always show latest posts at the top (as I thought I'd done already, but now possibly mistaken) - but then I realised that the reason was not because my profile hadn't changed properly, it was because I'd opened the thread without logging in!  As soon as I clicked "log in" and then went back and re-opened the thread, the latest post was on top and all was well with the world again!
